|Antigen Region||16-45 aa|
|Other Names||Securin, Esp1-associated protein, Pituitary tumor-transforming gene 1 protein, Tumor-transforming protein 1, hPTTG, PTTG1, EAP1, PTTG, TUTR1|
|Target/Specificity||This PTTG1 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 16-45 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human PTTG1.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is prepared by Saturated Ammonium Sulfate (SAS) precipitation followed by dialysis against PBS.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||PTTG1 Antibody (N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||EAP1, PTTG, TUTR1|
|Function||Regulatory protein, which plays a central role in chromosome stability, in the p53/TP53 pathway, and DNA repair. Probably acts by blocking the action of key proteins. During the mitosis, it blocks Separase/ESPL1 function, preventing the proteolysis of the cohesin complex and the subsequent segregation of the chromosomes. At the onset of anaphase, it is ubiquitinated, conducting to its destruction and to the liberation of ESPL1. Its function is however not limited to a blocking activity, since it is required to activate ESPL1. Negatively regulates the transcriptional activity and related apoptosis activity of TP53. The negative regulation of TP53 may explain the strong transforming capability of the protein when it is overexpressed. May also play a role in DNA repair via its interaction with Ku, possibly by connecting DNA damage-response pathways with sister chromatid separation.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Nucleus.|
|Tissue Location||Expressed at low level in most tissues, except in adult testis, where it is highly expressed. Overexpressed in many patients suffering from pituitary adenomas, primary epithelial neoplasias, and esophageal cancer|

PTTG1 is a homolog of yeast securin proteins, which prevent separins from promoting sister chromatid separation. It is an anaphase-promoting complex (APC) substrate that associates with a separin until activation of the APC. The protein has transforming activity in vitro and tumorigenic activity in vivo, and is highly expressed in various tumors. This protein contains 2 PXXP motifs, which are required for its transforming and tumorigenic activities, as well as for its stimulation of basic fibroblast growth factor expression. It also contains a destruction box (D box) that is required for its degradation by the APC. The acidic C-terminal region of the protein can act as a transactivation domain. It is mainly a cytosolic protein, although it partially localizes in the nucleus.
